Rare photo exhibition on Peres and Begin displayed in private NY reception Featured

New York, NY, Limmud FSU, in cooperation with the Menachem Begin Heritage Center, Shimon Peres’ staff, and UJA-Federation of New York, presented a remarkable photographic exhibition focusing on the lives and Eastern Europe-Jewish roots of two giants of modern Israel, Menachem Begin and Shimon Peres. The exhibition was presented as part of a special closed reception that took place yesterday at UJA-Federation of New York and it will soon be open to the public at another venue, to be announced.

“From Vilna Street, Vishneyeva to President’s Street, Jerusalem,” showcases the life and career of Israeli President Shimon Peres, and was curated by Yoram Dori, senior advisor to President Peres and a member of the Limmud FSU International Steering Committee. “Milestones - From Brest-Litovsk to the Prime Minister’s Office,” tells the story of Begin’s life and career as commander of the pre-state Irgun, as the sixth prime minister of the State of Israel, and as a Nobel Laureate. The exhibition on Begin was curated by Rami Shtivi.

The special reception, hosted by UJA-Federation of New York, included a gallery tour of the exhibit with guest speaker Israel’s Ambassador to the U.N. Ron Prosor.
